Waveland is undertaking an update to its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan so that the city remains eligible for federal pre- and post-disaster mitigation funds.

Communities are required to update their plans on a 5-year basis.

The plan update also helps the city maintain a reduction in the cost of flood insurance through FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) Program.

The local hazard mitigation is evaluating the effects of several hazards on the city of Waveland. These hazards include: Flooding (100-year and 500-year), Localized Stormwater Flooding, Hurricane and Tropical Storm (Coastal Storm Surge), Coastal and Canal Bank Erosion, Drought, Wildfire, Tornadoes, Thunderstorms, Extreme Weather (Heat and Winter Events), Earthquake, Dam and Levee Failure and Climate Change (Sea Level Rise).

The hazard mitigation planning process started with a public kickoff meeting on November 7, 2012. The Local Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) has been meeting since this time to develop this updated plan through development of a risk assessment and hazard vulnerability, plan goals and a mitigation strategy.

The City of Waveland would like your input on this plan update and here is how you can get involved.

A copy of the draft plan along with a survey/questionnaire on the impacts of hazard is available at the Waveland Public Library, 345 Coleman Avenue, Waveland, MS 39576.

You may also contact Wavelands Fire Chief,
Tony Malini, at the Waveland Fire Department
at 228-467-2042 for further information on how you can get involved.

You may download a pdf document of the complete Local Hazard Mitigation Plan here.

This is a Adobe Acrobat pdf document that rmay require Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be
downloaded, free of charge, here.
